Sevilla welcomes Barcelona
Sevilla welcomes Barcelona in a first 1/4-final clash from the Copa del Rey. Let’s examine this clash at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in our vip soccer bets for today.
This is a game between the two teams who reached the final last year. Maybe you remember that Barca won the trophy after a 5-0 beating over Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano. Now you can be sure that the Andalusians are motivated to avenge this heavy loss. The first leg is at the Sanchez Pizjuan, so they need to achieve a good result before the second leg at the Camp Nou.
Sevilla reached the 1/8-finals of the Copa del Rey after eliminating Athletic Bilbao in the previous round. Los Rojiblancos lost the second leg at home against the Basques, but their 3-1 win at the San Mames Barria allowed them to continue. Now they are going to need a better performance at home against Barca.
As for Barcelona, the big news here are related to the absence of Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets. Both players will get a rest, missing the match on Wednesday night. Now it remains to be seen how Barcelona will react to their absence, because we are talking about two crucial players for the team.
Meanwhile the new signing Kevin-Prince Boateng could make a debut. Boateng was surprisingly signed from Sassuolo and he was included in the squad for the visit to Andalusia. It’s expected that he’s going to play as a striker for Barca.
In the previous round Barcelona eliminated Levante from the competition, despite of losing the first leg away from home. At the Camp Nou Barca achieved a 3-0 win, which saved them from elimination.
